Finance & Insurance

Cloud solutions for BaFin-regulated banks and insurance companies

We help BaFin-regulated industries (FSI) overcome IT security and compliance challenges

Skaylink supports banks and insurance companies (Financial Services Industry, FSI) to implement their digital strategy in a compliance-conforming manner, taking BaFin (Federal Financial Supervisory Authority, Germany) requirements into account.
We simplify complex processes through automated work steps that are efficiently tailored to customer needs. It is not only about the technical implementation but also about the interaction between the IT department and business unit.
The aim of the insurers’ IT departments must be to quickly and flexibly adapt products, business processes and customer channels to the requirements of business units and customers. Ongoing changes and new requirements are leading to great expectations towards infrastructures, data processing and security.
With the help of our experts and the experience they gained from various projects in the FSI environment, we accompany our customers safely on their digital journey.
